Twi is a dialect of Akan, the principle language of Ghana. About 9 million people speak Akan, most of whom live in the Ashanti Region. Akan is also spoken in Côte-d'Ivoire. The Ashanti people take great pride in their language, since it reflects not only their culture but also the history of their great nation.
